I actually tried the exact same thing and it didnt work (though with a unique application).
Also the hacked Skype application will no install on the LeOS, (mabe it needs the lvl 9 api (since as far as i know android.hardware.camera.open(int) is only available from android version 2.3)?
unfortunately I am unsure how to enable the front cam of the lenovo. they deliver a documetation with an example of how to take a picture using the front camera, but not how to open the front camera
Intent intent = new Intent(MediaStore.ACTION_IMAGE_CAPTURE);
the again, i also do not know which name space the constaint REQUEST_CODE_TAKE_PICTURE is in, so I havent been able to try this either
My bad, should read instructions properly when installing
but when I try starting a video call it just crashes.
update: I got my application to work
now if I could only get my hands on the skype code
